The Vertebrate Vascular System

posted by Casey Dunn / on October 12th, 2012 / in Vertebrates
Christine Janis, a professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology here at Brown, designed these wonderful animations of vascular systems in vertebrates. Taken together, they provide a clear picture of the evolution of the vascular system, and place our mammalian vascular system in a much broader evolutionary context.
These animations were created in collaboration with Giovanna Roz Gastaldi and Ed Casey of Brown’s Instructional Technology Group, along with student technology assistants.

Here is the first of this semester’s creaturecasts from the students in Casey Dunn‘s Bio 0410 Invertebrate Zoology class here at Brown. Students in this class have the option of making a creaturecast episode for their final project. This one from Phil Lai introduces the Moray Eel and describes the amazing way they eat.
